Asianet 'Malayali 2007' Award Goes to A.K Antony

Defence Minister A. K. Antony Friday received Asianet award,'Malayali 2007' in a function organised here in trivandrum. While addressing the audience, he asked Malayalis to alter their mentality if they wanted Kerala to advance and thrive. "If one looks into the success stories of folk in every nook and box of the reality, there would surely be a Malayali who has emerged triumphant. But the tragic matter is that Malayalis in Kerala are not productive enough payable to their mentality, which is different to the mentality of a Malayali settled outside Kerala. This is the bane of Kerala," Antony said after receiving the prize by Asianet. "The demand of the minute is that we have to discover a physician who can indicate a cure to alter keralite's mindsets, which is pulling Kerala backwards in all fields," the onetime Kerala chief minister said. "The political leadership, cutting across political parties, has a character in this because we dont recognize when to begin an argument and when to finish it. Due to this, when we go one measure ahead, we go two steps backward. If this mentality is changed, Kerala will get nothing to seem backwards," said Antony. Asianet TV nominated Antony as one of the 10 best Malayalis and he won the best slot after 24 percentage of viewers voted for him. Malayalam Movie artist Prithviraj came in second spot. Antony received the prize from Chief Minister V. S. Achuthanandan, who had bagged the accolade last year.
